The promoters of the "Corvallis fc
Southern," are doing something besides
talking about this project. "While the
scheme they propose is a large one, they
seem to bo endowed with the energy and
perseverance to bring it to a successful
From President G. C. Millet, the Ga
zette has secured the following infor
mation concerning the intentions of the
promotors, which will be of interest to
our readers :
Mr. Millet said : "The company, com
posed ef citizens holding large tracts of
land and other properties along the
route was, and is, impressed with the
fact that a people who do not protect
their own public interest, and develop
their own general resources may not ex
pect other people to do so for them. So
if we residing along the West Side,
wish to enjoy the business revival, and
general prosperity prevailing over the
country, we must be active in develop
oping our own territory. This can only
be done by co-operation.
"A representative of the company vis
ited New York for the purpose of secur
ing the necessary capital to build the
road, and while there he closed a con
tract for the building and equipping of
the C. s S. E. B. with capitalists pos
sessed of ample means. But those cap.
italists assnred us that if those residing
in the immediate territory and enjoying
the direct benefits, manifest neither in
terest nor faith in the enterprise others
can not. 1
'We offer no stock for the reason that
we wish to do all in our power to pre
vent loss by anyone. Neither do we
aak any subsidies to be given. The co
operation we ask ia that citizens south
along the line, contribute toward the con
structioa ef the railroad, canal, etc,, by
buying bonds in common with other
bondholders, and of the same kind, viz:
five per cent gold bonds, secured by first
mortgage on the road. Or, if satisfac
factory, we prefer to issue paid up trans
portation certificates for both freight and
passengers; the same being transfera
ble, and may, therefore, be used per
sonally or transferred to heavy shippers.
The company's plan includes the opera
tion of boats from Corvallis to Portland.
"Bailfoads require business, and busi
ness demands people and people must
have hemes and employment, therefore,
include in the proposition other indus
tries calculated to develop the country,
encourage immigration, and furnish em
"Chief among the enterprises, is the
building of a canal from the Willamette
River via Junction City to the Long
Tom River, which will carry it to Mon
roe and may be carried to Corvallis.
"The canal will leave the Willamette
just north of the mouth of the McKen
zie, opening up all the timber in the
Cascade mountains on the upper Wil
lamette and its branches. It will pass
through a series of small lakes and will
hold ia absolute safety 100,000,000 feet of
The canal will cross the 8. P. R. R. at
Junction City, where it touches the
C. & S. Rs R. and will empty into the
Long Tom River about 2 miles north
west of Junction.
'A mill located at the junction of the
canal and Long Tom, or anywhere below
the junction of the canal, may have
floated to it, via the canal, billions of
feet af logs from the Cascade Mountains,
and hundreds of millions of feet, via the
Long Tom, from the Coast Mountains.
iThe fact that a point may be found so
near the heart of the great timber belts,
to which timber will float dowa stream
in such quantites in so short a distance,
without the expense of towing, and held
in ausoiuie Eecuruy, renders it such a
strategical point that it cannot be
ignored by timbermen. The canal will
develop at Monroe and other points a
water power second only to that of Ore
"The refuse from these sawmills will
furnish the cheapest of fuel for the flour
ing mills, driers, warehouses, etc., now
existing, and with the water power, will
invite other industries.
"In order to satisfy eastern capitalists
the 'company is compelled1 to ask, and
secure option on at least 50,000 acres o f
agricultural lands along the line en
which to locate colonists of different
nationalities, they having secured some
of the best emigrant agents in the United
States. We only ask to be permitted to
advertise the lands in three different
languages, viz, English, German and
Scandinavian, the owner agreeing to
accept the ptice and ' convey the land
when the purchaser arrives.
"These lands must be cheap in price
(not worthless), and the present prices of
land are cheap. We will net receive
land listed higher than the prices now
asked. The locality that receives the
hundreds of immigrants now ready to
come will be greatly benefited. We de
sire large tracts of land in a body, but
do not ask or recommend anyone to list
all their property for sale,' but only a
part, and many who are now land poor,
can list only a part of their lands and
still bold large tracts of land. What is
needed is - smaller holdings, which
means mere people and more business.
The complaint is 'You "lack population;
what you need is more people, and we
will furnish them if yon will co-operate
by furnishing good land, reasonable in
price en which to locate them.' '
"The-corupany proposes to operate its
qars on the interurbane plan making
a number of trips daily, and offering
such rates, schedules and general ac
commodations, as will' bring the high
school at Junction City, and the Agri
cultural College at Corvallis, in reach ot
every home along the line, the advan
tage of city schools, teachers, churches,
doctors and other professions and busi
ness, and will enable the people to reach
their county seat aud other places of
business in comfort, escaping the clouds
of dost in summer and the rain and mud
of winter, encouraging people to settle
and improve the land along the road
and thus build up different industries.

Many dinners were interrupted

clouds of smoke were rising from

During the progress of the
farmers' institute which was
held a few weeks ago at Sheri

of O A C, was asked several
questions on dairying:. Follow
ing are questions and answers:
He was asked how " many
pounds Of butter 100 pounds of
butter fat would make.
Ha said from no to 115
Relative to the best breed to
keep, he said the flairyman
should have a breed of milkers.
If they are prepared to take care
of the cows it would iprofeably be
best to head the herd with a
Jersey sire. If both milk and
beef are wanted, a milking breed
ef Shorthorns would be good.
As to how many poands of
ensilage are reqaired far cow,
he stated that it woald require
from 30 to 40 pounds for a 1,000
pound cow. She sheald also be
fed abont eight pounds of bran
and some clover or other kind of
What per cent of butter fat
should a eow give to make her
The answer," was that a cow
giving 5,000 pounds of milk
testing 5 per cent woald produce
250 pounds of bntter fat, while a
cow giving 10,000 pounds of
milk testing three per cent wSuld
produce 300 pounds of butter fat.
It is considered profitable to keep
all cows producing 200 pSunds
or more f butter fat per year.
If a farmer has four or five eows
it would be best to have a Bab
cock tester whica woald enable
him to distinguish between
the profitable and nnprofitable
cows. Testers cost only $4 or

added to other needless costs? Would
net the best I plan be to have all your
